I've heard the Pro 500 owned the Pro 900's and want to hear the signature DJ's but there is no way the bass on the D5000's wouldn't be enough. Its deeper than most but still clean and it responds well to being eq'd. I've only not heard the SigDj's but from the list there compared to the D5k's none of them can compete on a total scale. Biggest issue you'll have with any of the older Denon line is that they do not isolate very well at all. Its both a good and bad thing. There is virtually zero clamp or discomfort compared to like the M-Audio Q40's which hit like a ton of bricks but also squeeze your brain unlike any other headphone I've ever tried. The grip is of legend!! So its really personal preference. I don't mind a little sound leak because there is no way I'll be traveling with these headphones anyway so for me they're great and fit my needs perfectly.

 

Well at least until I save up for the D7000's

I will be mainly be using these headphones when I am out and about with my iPhone/E6. The low isolation and rumored durability issues with the D5000 are kind of a deal breaker.

Agree. I've never heard bass as good as the original DXXXX line. Not even the new D600 compares. And comfort issues is why I returned my Q40s. The cups were shallow and clamped on my ears like a bitch. I was too lazy to buy Beyer pads.

 

And I would take off the D600s from the list if they're mostly for portable use. They are way too big and bulky. I'm usually don't care about appearances but they would look ridiculous if you wore them in public.

I've never heard a set of the Fostex manufactured Denons. I had tons of people recommending me those for Bass, but they failed to mention they are discontinued. You can't find them new and the "new" series of Denons are not made by Fostex (nobody knows yet who makes them) but the initial reports aren't good... They probably should have stayed with Fostex...

It isn't distorted its boomy.

Hey guys, I think I'm going to go with the M100, especially with the rumors of Vmoda making some extra plush replacement pads for them. Truth be told, these were the cans that I was almost about to buy the day they came out, but then decided to weigh all my options. Thanks so much for all your help. If the M100 disappoints, I'll be sure to come back here again!

Those were on my Radar as well. Would love to hear how you like them once you have a chance to hear them.

You can swap the pads out on them for DT250 pads.

 

Those fit on the HFI 580 too, which means Brainwavz HM5 pads likely fit too biggrin.gif

 

I think just about any headphones that is basshead approved paired with a ZO2 amp will give you what you want.

hey dude,

 

I had the M100 and it is a legit pair of headphones. the bass is really baller. deep, accurate with a lot of impact and extends downlow into the really low frequencies. i would highly recommend these pair of headphones.

I vote Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 80 ohm. They have so much bass (HUGE, rumbling low end) that they gave me a pounding earache. If you are a basshead they should be perfect. They are also well made and comfy. Make sure you get an amp like the Fiio E11.

Many years ago I owned a pair of Sony's (possibly CD1000) which had bass that positively growled at you. They weren't just bass monsters either but actually had a fairly neutral signature. They also had a weird self-adjusting headband mechanism that was ultimately their downfall. I ended up selling them at a knockdown price to someone who reckoned he could fix the headband. I haven't seen him since. Still to this day one of the best headphones I've ever heard.

i have not heard them myself but my friend goes on and on about how awesome the bass is on his sony Pulse ps3 wireless headphones.  they work wired as well.  they have some bassimpact feature that rumbles the bass.  also watched a couple of reviews on youtube and many opinions say they are for bassheads
